CATHOLIC CONGRESS AMONG THE SIOUX INDIANS, IN SESSION AT ST. JEROMES MISSION, CROW HILL. FORT TOTTEN, N. DAKOTA, JULY 5, 6, 7, 8, 1906. On ^Wednesday evening July 4. Rt. Rev. Bishop J. Shanleyof North Dakota, was expected at St. Je- rome's Mission, Crow Hill, where the Catholic Congress of Sioux In- dians from Fort Totten, Crow Creek, Sisseton, Fort Yates, Cannon Ball, Porcupine Station, Fort Berthold, Manitoba and Red Latse, Minn, was to be held. Those present were to the number of over 2000. For miles around, the green prairie was dotted with tents. Preparations had been made some d ys before for the reception of the i, ishop. Members of St. Joseph's ocietv went witn carriages, to Obe- >n seven miles south west of the iission to meet the Bishop and ac- * jmpanving elergv: — Rev. Father ( eraghty of Jamestown, N. Dakota, j ,ev. Father Duffy of Jamestown, 1.. D., Rev. Father Reardan of St. Paul's Seminarv Minn., Rev. Father Bernard O. S. B. of Fort Yates, Standing Rock, N. D., Rev. Fatner Ambrose O. S. B. of St. Stephan, S. D., in charge of the Mission wor* on the Crow CreeK and Lower Brule Reservation, and Rev. Father Je- rome of tne Fort Totten Mission, N. D. The members of St. Joseph's and St. - Mary's Societies with tneir ban- ners and regalia were at the Mission awaiting the arrival of the Bisnop, and when he approached gave him a hearty greeting and welcome, after- which ne spoke to tnem and told them the order to be followed tne next day, July 5, the opening of tne Congress. Tnen, the Bishop and visitino- clergy continued tneir jour- nev to tne Seven Dolors Mission, five miles east, wnere tney received a cordial welcome from the Sisters. Tnursdav morniug, members of St. Joseph's Society came with their carriages, to convey tae Bisnop and Clergy to the site of the Congress, where preparations had been made for an ouen air service, as the people could not bs accommodated in tne church. They were blessed bv hav- ing the most favorable weather du- ring the entire congress. At 10 o'clock a large procession was formed at the church whence it moved to the delicately decorated altar, under canony, erected on an elevated part of the prairie, opposite the ckurch, where Divine Service was held. First came the cross- bearer and acolvtes, members of St. * * Joseph's and St. Mary's Societies with banners and regalia, clergy and Rt. Rev. Bishop Shanley. Solemn Highmass was begun at once bv Rev. Father Bernard O. S. B., Rev. Fathers Duffv and Reardan. deacon and Subdeacon of the Mass. The church choir, composed mostly of the old school boys and girls, now fa- thers and mothers of families, sang the Mass "in festis solemnibus" to tne satisfaction of all, under the dif- ficulty of open air singing. After the gospel Father Jerome preached in Sioux. Mass was followed by Benediction of tne Blessed Sacrament, afterwhich the Bishop administered Confirma- tion to a number of children and adults, and returned in procession to the church. In the afternoon at 1:30 the Bi- shop and clergy were conducted to a large and well constructed bowerv. tastefullv decorated with dranerv of the glorious stars and stripes, near their meetinghouse, where a general meeting of the societies was called to order. Tne meeting was opened bv praver, afterwhich the Bishop de- livered a very practical, impressive, and paternal address of which the the following is a summarv: — I am very much pleased to be in vour midst to dav, to see vou assem- bled here, from so many distant pla- ces, and I am especially pleased, to see. so manv voung ueoule. whose future will be a bright and happv one, in so far as you are now faithful to your religion, living the lives of practical catholics, giving good ex- ample to vour children, following the instructions of your good Missiona- ries, and thus, acting according to your faith, and under the protection of Holv Mother Church, vou will be- come good and useful men and wo- men. The Catholic Indians have to con- men and women should ioin this so- ciety and thus become united to the 100.000 members, all over the Uni- ted States, who belong to this Union. Then, from Dakota, this Temperance Society, will spread, become known and established among other Indian tribes. East and West. The mem- bers will hold meetings from time to time, will wear a little badge to dis- tinguish them an4 by wnich they can recognize eacn other. To be- come a member, vou must be a Ca- tend with many more difficulties and temptations than the White man, therefore be united, stand firmly to- gether and help each other to fight against evil influences- There are two great dangers, by which you are surrounded and of which, I wish to speak to you to-day. You krjow the foundation of a good christian family is the union between husband and wife. This union you contracted before the altar of God and with the blessing of God Al- rnightv. There vou received the tholic and receive the Sacraments: at grace of God to enable you. to lead good, christian lives, to be faithful to each other, and to bring up vour children as good catholics. This is the Sacrament of Matrimonv. Christ instituted this sacrament. One man can marry only one woman, and no- thing can separate them but death; one woman can marrv onlv one man and they must stay together as long as they live. This union cannot be broken, there is no such thing as di- vorse allowed in our church; what God has joined together let no man put asunder. You cannot be a ca- tholic if vou put awav vour wife and take another one. It is a great sin. Another great danger, to which the Indians are exposed is, the use of intoxicating drinks, especially whiskey. Wicked white people iniure vou bv their bad example, their coming among you, exposes you to the temptation of drinking whiskey, which steals your brain and is a poison, thus, depriving you of reason and health. The devil is in it. You spend the money, which your- selves and your families need, and the white man laughs at the Indian making a fool of himself. Let the Indian keep his money and use it for his own betterment, then he can laugh at the white man, but. let him imitate the example of the good white man, hate whiskey, keep from every place, where it is sold, and from everv p'erson, who gives it to you. The old Indians do not drins so much, but, I warn you, young men and bovs to take everv means, to protect yourselves against this great evil. It is for this reason, that I wish, to-day, to establish among vou a "Temperance Societv." It is mv least, at Easter-time. Each one must give his and her name, and oromise never to drink, not onlv whiskev, but, also, any other drinks which can make vou drunk. At Turtle Moun- tains, last year, the Indians drank •'Florida Water." Nine persons died from the effects of it. Be it un- derstood that this Temperance So- cietv must not. in anv wav, interfere with the continuation of the other Societies, already established among you. One more Advice: Do not sell your land. Tne white man is ready to grasp it. Keep your land for vour children, who, when vou are gone will be happy to live in the home or their fathers. Several members of St. Joseph's Society, in turn, responded, and ex- pressed their good will to follow the paternal advices of the Bishop, re- cognized the necessity of it; and the great harm many had done to them- selves and families bv failing in these points. Rev. Father Reardan also suoke a few words of encouragement to the Indians, and expressed his great pleasure, at seeing established among them, a Unkm so productive of good for body and soul. Then followed the taking of the solemn pledge. Those who 0-ave their names to the number of eio-thv five, came forward, stood in -the presence of the Bishop and clergv and whilst the Bishop extended his hands over them, they repeated, in loud voices, tne following words of the pledge. '•In honor of the sacred thirst of our Lord on the Cross, I promise, to abstain from all intoxicating drinks, and I humbly implore the Grace of earnest desire that old and young God, to keep this pledo-e ." JULY 15, 1906. The number would have been lar- ger, but many had already taken the pledge. The chief Pastor standing in the midst of his Indian flook, and the intense satisfaction and interest.' pictured on the countenance of every man, woman and child, was a most pleasing sight. In conclusion, the Rt. Rev. Bi- shop suoke his farewell to the In- dians. He said, he regretted not being able, to remain longer with them, which would be a real pleasure to him; expressed his entire satisfac- tion over the' proceedings of the Congress and tne good Work accom- ulished, toldtnein tnat, if any ques- tion came uu, needing explanation, to apply, to the good Missionary Fa- tners, the faitnful interpreters of his wishes, and invoked God's blessing upon them and on their meeting. Tne Congress continued till the afternoon of July 8, wnen all in peace and happiness, gave a hearty shake of hands, till their next meet- ing, which thev decided to be at Fort Yates. X. Datcota Julv 6, 1907. CONGRESS AT FT, TOTTEN. (By Father Bernard of Fort Yaies, N. Dak.) Whose heart should not rejoice at the grand spectacle presented to us a few davs ago bv the great Con- gress held at St. Jerome's church, Crow Hill, Fort Totten. What heart could possibly refrain from express- ing its feeling of happiness and ex- altation at tne thought tnat more than 2000 pious Indian Catches as- sembled within the bowery of the famous hill to assist at tne solemn services of trie cnureu in open air and to be strengthened bv the words of tne renowned Father Jerome, U. S. B. words spoken with such tender emotion and so deep of meaning. Indeed all the Indians highly apre- clated it and the priests present with their esteemed Bisnop were greatly edified bv the pious demeanor of the humble congregation. Julv 5. 6, 7, were m effect red letter days for the Oatnolic Indians of Fort Totten, Standing Rock Agency, Fort Ber- tnold, Crow Creek and Sisseton; for during these davs was revived again the tone spirit of the church, name- ly to live together in union and love and to bestow upon each other the kiss of peace. Tne singing during the many sessions was exceptionally good and for it the Oatnolic Indians of Fort Totten deserve tne greatest praise. What zeal, patience and love must it not have cost the good Fa- wier Jerjm^ and the Yen. Sisters in instructing so well the children and the poor old Indians? But all has been accomplished and the result is ex- ceedingly gratifving, Tnat some verv insruotive and highly edifving speeches were made need not be mentioned; as the Indians are known for their power of eloquence and flu- encv of speech. What was tne most gratifving and the most acceptable to all was the solemn pledge tan en by 85 persons, men and women, in tne presence of the Rt. Rev. Bi- shop and six priests to abstain for life from all intoxicating' liquors. It was a new phenoruen and was received witn great applause. May tne number of tnose w;no so soleinhly pledged themselves to the good cause of temperance , speedily in- crease and bring forth a multitude, of meritorious works. All are aware of the terrible con- sequences of intoxication and wnat havoc - it has wrought among, the whites, wnat evil it is bringing forth among tne Indians tne Missionaries are onlv familiar, with it. T nis move is therefore in tne right direction and the best worK of an Indian Con- gress. ■ Another verv pleasing feature of the congress was the untiring zeal of tne good Grey Nuns, who at all- times inaKe it a point, of doing their best. Tne visiting clergy and tne Misssionaries extend tneir heartfelt thank to the courtesv and hospitality of tne good hearted Sisters. It must not be forgotten that the Catholic Indians of Fort, Totten, have tried their best to be royal entertainers and give of their best to tne visiting Indians of tfne, North DaKota diocese. An entire vear was spent by them for the collection of the different articles used up dur- ing the sessions of the congress and more tnali 600 dollars were deposit- ed into the treasury for this purpose. Tne Congress at Fort Totterl must be considered a grand success owing to the able management of tneir President, John Strait and his wor- thy associates, and writer of these lines hopes to see many sucn happy gatherings.

Rev. John N. Stariha, Bishop of Lead. S. Dakota, arrived at the Mission Saturday afternoon, June 23, and was cordially and solemnly re- ceived bv the pupils and teachers of the school and by the members of the Indian St. Joseph's and St. Ma- ry's Societies who were present in large numbers as thev were likewise on Sunday morning, when they ac- companied His Lordship to church. After Hightnass the Rt. Rev. Bishop delivered a vel'v forcible sermon in terms well chosen for all present, Catholics and Non-Catholics, about the duties of a Christian and the courage with which he should pro- fess his faith, which was listened to with great attention. Seventv chil- dren and adults received tne Sacra- ment of Confirmation. In the after- noon the pupils of the school o-ave a reception to the High Guest in the school hall, where they entertained the Bishop and a great many people with a somewhat lengthy pro- gramme, the different numbers' of wiiicn tnev performed and carried out to tne evident satisfaction r of all present. The Bishop addressed the cnildren and teachers in fatherlv ml words expressing his great gratifh- cation in regard to all he had seen and witnessed in church and school since his arrival at tne Mission. He also expressed himself in a nighly satisfactory manner about the bar- tnonv existing between the school and the Agency, as he was very glad to meet on this occation also the wew Agent. Major W. L. Belden and many of his empoyees, and wisn- ed that these cordial relations would never cease to exist as tne union and faithful cooperation of churcn and state would not fail to work for the greatest benefit of the Indians entrusted to the care of both. On Monday the Bishop was for several hours with tne members of St, Joseph's and St. Marv's Societies in tneir meeting house. Several of their spokesmen addressed ther Bi- shop expressing their joy to have him again in their midst ; visiting this farthest and most remote mission in his diocese on a great around way through South Dakota, Nebraska and lOA\a, having to contend with poor and verv un satisfactory R. R. con- nections, and at places with hard and difficult roads on account of late heavy rain storms. The Bishop paid great attention to every thing the Indians had to say and took great pains to answer their questions and doubts: He was especially well pleased to hear them ask and pray, that church and state should do their utmost to prevent and exterminate the divorce evil that had crept in also among them as an evil fruit and bad effect of a misunderstood, false civilization. He also was verv much gratified to hear from them, that there was a temperance movement going on among them and a temper- ance Societv established bv them. He encouraged them greatly in this undertaking, and promised them to second their praiseworthy efforts along these lines by every possible means, and desired that the temper- ance cause be especially advocated 4. V bv them at the next Congress to be held at Pine Ridge, S. D. during July. All were highly pleased over the pleasent meeting, and received his blessing with the full conviction that they had in Bishop Stariha a true Shepherd of their Souls, a lov- ing Father and a true Friend.
